Satan, thy name is...
You know how you run a half-marathon, and you work out, and you're feeling pretty good about your fitness level? I mean, you think, "hey. I'm killing it out here. Gym or running 5-6 days a week. Eating well. I mean, I am the man."
Then, one day, you decide to buy "30 day shred," and suddenly, you are humbled.
Ok, you may not have had that experience, but I did today! I don't know what it was. I mean, it was only 20 minutes. But y'all. Rough. I did give it my all, so maybe that was it. I found some really simple stuff difficult - jumping jacks?? I guess that running uses totally different muscles - there is no reason that should have been even remotely challenging!
But it was.
And then, because I was really irritated that I only got 4 WW points for the workout, I went out for a run.
Oh, PS. It's 90 degrees here today with 99% humidity. You underestimate how much you use your arms when running - they are like jello from the shred. I felt like they were flopping all over the place!
I may not be able to walk tomorrow, but it was pretty great to try something new and get a little variety in my work out routine.
So, dear readers, was there ever a time when you were feeling on top of your fitness game and then were completely humbled? Surely I'm not the only one!
